    Is it a single piece of dressed stone, or is it a concrete casting?
    If stone, it could be worth a fair bit.
    If concrete you'll be able to price it easy enough, as there's several companies that make them like that you could compare with.

    Call an architectural salvage yard they will probably give you an offer, then you decide to sell to them or add 30% and sell privately

    Have you seen the TV programme The Salvage Hunter? Drew Pritchard (he's based not a million miles from you), will probably give you £500 pounds each for them and then sell them on at ten times that if you believe everything you see on TV.
    Seriously though if you contact a salvage yard like his and perhaps email him a few pictures you may be pleasantly surprised.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    At the rcs last yr a trough like that would make£1500 retail, look on the net for some high end landscape company's they will pay the most, salvage is a mugs game unless you need to shift them fast.
